Danish Ida Nielsen was discovered in 2010 by none other than Prince. He invited her to a jam session and immediately fell in love with her bass playing. She therefore joined his band The New Power Generation and was later one of the four band members of 3rdeyegirl. Until Prince's death, she toured extensively with both bands.
Ida was voted one of the top 10 bass players in the world (along with fellow bassists Stanley Clarke & Victor Wooten) in the annual Music Radar poll 2019. Now Ida is conquering the world with her band The Funkbots. Since the release of their third album in 2016, they have been touring non-stop. Her shows are full of high energy funk, good vibes, tight grooves and subtle references to her former mentor Prince.
